The emergence of freshman Doug A

Despite the recent downturn in
their fortunes, Bahr expects his team
to fare well against Indiana. "I think
we'll win. We may be down a bit men-

very competitive. Even though we
have lost two out of three, both those
losses were against top ten schools."
Indiana's coach, Jim Humphrey,
who Bahr calls "a good recruiter and
a hard worker" wouldn't predict the
outcome of the meet but said, "We're
gonna go out and fight like dogs
against Michigan."
